Fonix Speech joined Epic Games’ Integrated Partners Program (IPP) for Unreal Engine 3, fully integrating Fonix VoiceIn Game Edition into Unreal Engine 3, now available for licensing directly from Fonix Speech.

“We’re pleased to have Fonix join our Integrated Partners Program as it enables us to provide Unreal Engine 3 licensees with access to complementary technology that helps them deliver great content. Our licensees can be safe in the knowledge that Fonix has fully integrated VoiceIn and provides direct support for its use within Unreal Engine 3,” said Mark Rein, Vice President, Epic Games, Inc.

Epic Games has established the Integrated Partners Program for the purposes of having a formal business relationship with selected companies making cross-platform technologies that integrate with, and are complementary to, Unreal Engine 3. Under the IPP program, Epic provides continuous Unreal Engine 3 source code access and full technical support to IPP members. Companies who join the IPP agree to provide a high level of technical support for UE3 licensees through Epic’s established support channels, keep their implementations up-to-date with the latest UE3 versions, and work with Epic on potential promotional and co-marketing efforts. The IPP program will make it easier for Unreal Engine 3 licensees to incorporate third-party middleware solutions from IPP vendors into their games.

“The IPP is a great opportunity for Fonix,” says Tim K. Hong, Vice President, Fonix Games. “It allows us to market our voice recognition software and integration code directly to videogame developers who have licensed Epic’s Unreal Engine. Epic is currently one of the most respected middleware providers in the game industry, and joining the IPP allows Fonix to introduce our voice recognition technologies to the best developers in the business working on the latest cutting-edge games.”
